This O’so pretty ornament was made by PWA Design Team member Dee Moran.
Here’s how she did it:
One clear 2” glass ornament
Iridescent Bubble Beads (Pennywise Arts)
Transparency (3 inch square) (Pennywise Arts – near the bottom of the page)
Rubber stamp of your choice (this one is from Stampin Up)
Small hole punch
Black Staz On ink
Cut a 2” circle out of the Transparency. Stamp image onto the transparency using the Staz On ink and stamp of choice. Color image with Sharpie pens. Dabbing a paper towel over the colored image will even out the look. Let it dry for a few minutes.
Punch a hole at the top of the transparency and thread the thin cording through it.
Remove the cap from the clear glass ornament, then roll up the dry transparency and push it down inside, leaving the cording hanging out. It will open up once inside the ball. Tie a knot in the cord. (The knot is left on the outside of the ornament and is held in place by the cap and hidden when the embellishments are added.) Pour Iridescent Bubble Beads into the ornament and put the cap back onto the ball leaving the corded knot on the outside. Decorate with ribbons, fibers, wire and flowers.
**Another variation that Dee said works well is to print a holiday image from one of our collage sheets onto a transparency and insert that inside.
